Title I School-Level Parental Involvement Policy

Carlsbad Village Academy

 

Carlsbad Village Academy has developed a written Title I parental involvement policy with input from Title I parents. This was achieved through parent feedback during parent conferences.  It has distributed the policy to parents of Title I students via letters, email, and posting the policy on the school website.  The policy describes the means for carrying out the following Title I parental involvement requirements [20 USC 6318 Section 1118(a)-(f) inclusive].


 

Involvement of Parents in the Title I Program

 

To involve parents in the Title I program at Carlsbad Village Academy, the following practices have been established:

 

  • The school convenes an annual meeting to inform parents of Title I students about Title I requirements and about the right of parents to be involved in the Title I program.

    • The school holds School Site Council meetings to discuss these topics.

  • The school offers a flexible number of meetings for Title I parents, such as meetings in the morning or evening.

    • Parents are asked to determine convenient times to attend meetings and based on their feedback meetings are set to accommodate the majority of parents.

  • The school involves parents of Title I students in an organized, ongoing, and timely way, in the planning, review, and improvement of the school’s Title I programs and the Title I parental involvement policy.

    • During School Site Council meetings parents review the ongoing improvements and the parent involvement policy.  

    • These meetings are scheduled at least one time per semester.

  • The school provides parents of Title I students with timely information about Title I programs.

    • This is achieved through parent conferences with the principal.

  • The school provides parents of Title I students with an explanation of the curriculum used at the school, the assessments used to measure student progress, and the proficiency levels students are expected to meet.

    • Parents receive information about curriculum and assessment during the Back-to-School Night and through intake meetings for new students.

 

  • If requested by parents of Title I students, the school provides opportunities for regular meetings that allow the parents to participate in decisions relating to the education of their children.

    • Parents are encouraged to attend School Site Council Meetings that are held each semester.

    • Parents may also meet with the principal at any time to discuss the program.  



 

School-Parent Compact

 

Carlsbad Village Academy distributes to parents of Title I students a school-parent compact. The compact, which has been jointly developed with parents, outlines how parents, the entire school staff, and students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement. It describes specific ways the school and families will partner to help children achieve the State’s high academic standards. It addresses the following legally required items, as well as other items suggested by parents of Title I students.

  • The school’s responsibility to provide high-quality curriculum and instruction

  • The ways parents will be responsible for supporting their children’s learning

  • The importance of ongoing communication between parents and teachers through, at a minimum, annual parent-teacher conferences; frequent reports on student progress; access to staff; opportunities for parents to volunteer and participate in their child’s class; and opportunities to observe classroom activities

 

The school developed this policy through input from parents, students and staff.  This compact is affirmed during each student’s  intake process to the school.


 

Building Capacity for Involvement

 

Carlsbad Village Academy engages Title I parents in meaningful interactions with the school. It supports a partnership among staff, parents, and the community to improve student academic achievement. To help reach these goals, the school has established the following practices.

  • Throughout the year staff meetings are dedicated to involving parents.

  • The school coordinates and integrates the Title I parental involvement program with other programs, and conducts other activities, such as parent resource centers, to encourage and support parents in more fully participating in the education of their children.
